clipper card with the america's cup catamaran on it. we have developed parking site with the last-mile transit connections and training mta and america's cup event authorities and ambassadors to answer questions. as part of that training we have been doing sensitivity training and the mta is leading that charge, making sure that people are aware of varying needs as they need to cross a street or access a bus or get to any special needs that they might have. so we're getting close. i look forward to your questions. some of the lessons that we have learned is really to engage our partners in advance, including everyone from local and regional to public and private and this has and a multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional approach and will greatly inform the city's efforts to do other big events such as the america's cup. we have used the environmental review process to inform our transportation studies and are applying them to projects such as the warriors arena on piers 30-32 and some of the other developments south of marketa and we're using pilot projects to test effectivene

with the america's cup, we relocated or had to terminate 37 tenants, and we manage 557 tenancies. and many times we hear about the giants and we hear about the exploratorium, and we hear about the ferry building, but i would say 95% of our tenants are small businesses ~. there are city-owned resident businesses and they're working class jobs that support many of the businesses in the rest of the city. we have warehouses that store alcohol for our restaurants, fish processors, and many businesses that take the goods that they store on the port property and deliver them to various businesses around the city. everybody likes a piece of pie, so, this is a snapshot of the agreements that were executed in 2012-13. and as you can see, the majority of them are new agreements that are using our properties to become available. and we are proud of the work that we do. and there are projects that come to the port that are -- that don't meet -- they don't quite meet the planning and development -- development projects like you have out of pier 70 or seawall lot 330. ~ that are tenant improvement p
